Expiration date is a charming fairy tale of a book. A kind of hope for what might be possible as a woman ages. Jaffe's idea of an expiration date- an end to a life- is the central idea that guides a mother and daughter, one in in her 80's, the other nearing 60. In a kind of reverse, the more elder refuses to see an end, the younger checks her life calendar daily. Jaffe raises many ideas familiar to all women as they age: body issues, sex, family obligations and obligation to self.
Her characters are able to reolve them all or accept them and live on, with no discernible recriminations.
